Some new old photos on the Italian Machine
Some pencilling going on, I’ll share some of that later today.
Last night I posted some more of Lionel’s photos.
The one I’m posting here below is significant for animation geeks, this is a young Clive A. Smith, director and co founder of Nelvana Studios in Toronto.
He was a friend of my parents and much later my mother would work at Nelvana starting out on Rock and Rule [poster on the right] and going on to be a senior director there for several years before going freelance. You can check out here work on this site.
As a result I had the good fortune to get to grow up running around a large animation studio from when I was 9 till 15 or so when I stopped going as often. Later I also worked there myself a couple of times as a designer. It would be an understatement to call that a formative experience. My first sexy girl drawings were attempts to reproduce drawings of Angel from the studio character sheets when I was 10 or so.
